At the first sign of hair loss, we do not know what to do. You may be asking yourself…should I go see a doctor? Should I stop coloring? Can my stylist help? Maybe if I stop touching it, I won’t lose so much?
- See a dermatologist
- See a trichologist
- Talk to a hair restoration expert
Visiting a Dermatologist or Physician
Schedule appointment with your dermatologist or physician. It’s important to find out if there is a medical issue at hand. A dermatologist is a medical professional that studies the skin. Your scalp is skin. That is why seeing a dermatologist is so important as they can see if there is a scalp condition that needs to be treated.
You could possibly be having other symptoms as well. This is why it is important to also speak with your regular physician to rule out any other medical concerns, such as thyroid disorders, lupus, autoimmune disorders, and other disorders frequently associated with hair loss. A routine check of blood work should be a first suggestion. Interview them. Speak to them about your hair loss concerns. Get their recommendations. Are they concerned about your hair loss? Do they show genuine concern for what you are going through psychologically? How willing are they to help find a solution or cause? Based on your results from this visit you may also desire more information. If that’s the case you can seek a certified Trichologist or hair restoration expert.
Visiting a Trichologist
At Custom Design Hair, we have a certified trichologist on staff. Trichology is the branch of medical and cosmetic study and practice concerned with the hair and scalp. Trichologists can be certified professionals or medical doctors. They are able to discuss with you different treatment options, recommendations, and scalp therapy solutions.
They can also assess and identify viable hair follicles. This will let you know what stage you are at in your hair loss journey. This information is important in deciding how to proceed. A certified trichologist working within a hair restoration center is ideal. As this trichologist will be able to give you further recommendations if hair regrowth is not an option.
